The MG 82 LMG in CoD Warzone fast is becoming a proper meta LMG once again. Here are the best Attachments and full loadout you should be using for it. 

Warzone’s Season 4 update in Verdansk brought with it the MG 82 LMG, and it was instantly the main meta weapon for long-range gunfights. It was promptly nerfed and was in the wilderness for quite some time.

However, it has been reborn in Warzone Pacific’s Caldera, primarily thanks to nerfs to the mega-popular Bren LMG. Players have realized just how effective the MG 82 can be and it’s destined for a decent time in the spotlight.

The MG 82 can easily tear enemy squads apart with the right build and we’ve put together the perfect loadout for you to use.


Best MG 82 loadout for Warzone

Best MG 82 loadoutActivision / Treyarch
This MG 82 build is capable of dishing out some serious damage.


  • Muzzle: Agency Suppressor
  • Barrel: 16.4” Task Force
  • Optic: Axial Arms 3x
  • Underbarrel: Field Agent Grip
  • Rear Grip: Serpent Wrap

The real beauty of the MG 82 is in its ability to effortlessly beam opponents from afar with laser-like accuracy. When kitted out with the attachments above, the MG 82 is an absolute monster across all engagement ranges. 

First up is the Agency Suppressor and 16.4” Task Force barrel. Both these attachments increase the gun’s effective damage range, bullet velocity, vertical/horizontal recoil control, and even suppress your shots.

Combine this with the MG 82’s already blisteringly fast rate of fire and you’ll be taking down multiple players before they can even react. This is made even easier when you land head and body shots using the Axial Arms 3x.

However, just like all LMGs, the MG 82 does struggle on the mobility side of things. While the Serpent Wrap does help speed up the gun’s ADS,  it’s often best to switch to your secondary in close-quarter situations to avoid any frustrating deaths.

Lastly, the Field Agent Grip provides even more control of the weapon, helping reduce recoil and hit those all-important long-range shots.

Best MG 82 class

Make sure you have an SMG for your secondary.
  • Perk 1: E.O.D.
  • Perk 2: Overkill
  • Perk 3: Amped
  • Secondary: MAC-10
  • Lethal: Semtex
  • Tactical: Heartbeat Sensor

This MG 82 class utilizes all the same perks and equipment as our other meta Warzone loadouts. EOD and Amped are a must if you wish to reduce explosive damage and switch to your secondary quicker.

Having a mobile weapon like the MAC-10 is a must, particularly given how sluggish the MG 82 can be. Once you have selected your Overkill loadout, then try to always secure Ghost on your next drop. 

Keeping hidden from enemy UAVs and Heartbeat Sensors is incredibly important to your survival, especially in later rounds where the ring brings everyone closer together. 

How to unlock the MG 82 in Warzone

MG 82 Season 4 Battle PassActivision / Treyarch
It doesn’t take long to unlock the MG 82.

Firstly, you could buy a Blueprint if and when they arrive in the store. If you don’t want to spend money though, you simply have to kill 3 or more enemies without reloading across 15 different completed matches using LMGs.

When it launched, the MG 82 could be unlocked by reaching Tier 15 of the Season 4 Battle Pass. Of course, that opportunity has now disappeared, so players have these two different options instead.

Alternative to the MG 82 loadout

Stoner 63 Black Ops Cold WarActivision / Treyarch
The Stoner 63 is one LMG that has proven popular.

The PKM and Stoner 63 are great options for those that enjoy the LMG playstyle. Both guns feature great accuracy, damage, and recoil — making them viable options in Caldera. 

The Stoner 63 remains a very powerful weapon in Warzone. Meanwhile, the PKM has secretly been a fan-favorite for the longest time, thanks to its overall ease of use and effectiveness, though it might not quite be as strong as the Stoner 63.
